Today I’m excited to announce the launch of World of the Weasel, a series of picture books for kids and the adults who read to them!
Just a couple of years ago, my writing partner James Munn and I kicked around ideas for a story about a boy and his secret wily pet. It’s been an adventure to turn this idea into something tangible. In the intervening time, we wrote, wrote, and re-wrote. We started a company, Spitball Studio, to publish the books. And we partnered with the massively talented illustrator Dave Leonard to bring our first book to life.
Once Upon a Weasel is a picture book about a misfit boy who, in a spontaneous moment, buys a secret pet that sparks a series of fantasy adventures where the two travel through space and dream of living on the moon. Back on planet Earth, trouble arises when the boy’s pet escapes during a class field trip and turns an entire science museum upside down.
Once Upon a Weasel is now available as an e-book, which you can read on an iPad, Amazon Kindle Fire, or other color tablet or e-reader. Order the e-book here:
On November 1st, Once Upon a Weasel will be available as a beautiful hardcover book.
